Kulleraugen : Saucer Eyes Cookies
Kulleraugen or Saucer Eyes Cookies are Christmas shortbread biscuits that looks like big saucer eyes.
They are remain in our Christmas cookies sortiment ever since we experimented with different recipes since 2007.
It is fun baking these cookies. And we love their taste, too.
250 g flour
1 / 2 tsp baking powder
100 g sugar
1 pack vanilla sugar
a pinch of salt
3 egg yolk
150 g butter
1 egg white
50 g chopped almonds
60 g strawberry jam
Mix flour with baking powder. Add sugar, vanilla sugar and a pinch of salt. Separate the eggs yolk from the egg white. Set aside the egg white. Add the egg yolk to the flour.
Add butter to the flour and knead until it forms a firm dough. Cover and store for an hour in the refrigerator.
Afterwards, form small dough balls and place on a baking paper-lined baking sheet. Leave a space of at least an inch between each balls.
Press the center of each ball with your finger to make a hollow hole. Dip the upper edge of the dough balls in egg white then dip again into the chopped almonds. Fill the holes with strawberry jam.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. The Kulleraugen needs around 20 minutes to bake.
